Not quite true. All types of weapons are protected. Military grade, single shot, hunting, target, even those designed to hang on the wall.

The reasoning was and still is simple. The fledgling country had just taken on their governors, the British, who possessed the finest and best equipped army on earth. The fledglings won. And they won starting with weapons borrowed from an armed peoples. While nobody loaned them a mini gun, they had the finest weapons available at the time. Lesson learned.
